S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.
The sin at this time in history, of God’s chosen people, was beyond description. The spiritual state of Israel was so cold that there was no one who would take a stand for righteousness and stand in the middle ground between God and His people to plead their case. In fact, in this passage the Lord said, “I sought for someONE who would do it, but I found noONE.”
The word GAP is used in this famous passage of scripture. At the time of Ezekiel’s prophecy, the Lord was looking for someone to stand in the GAP between God and the people of Israel to ask for God’s mercy and forgiveness, but there was no one to be found. What about today? As I look around the world, there are some places where the gospel is on fire in a positive way, and people are turning to Jesus in unparalleled fashion. Other places, Christianity is under full-on attack from the enemy’s crowd. Whether in good times or in bad times, the Lord is looking for a man. He’s looking for a woman. He’s looking for people who will stand in the gap to save a city, a region, a country, and the world. So the question today is directed at you. “Are You Ready To Stand In The Gap?”
I’m ready this AM to stand in the GAP so that men and women can be spared Your judgment and instead find Your mercy and forgiveness. Amen
